We want to welcome Virginia Tech to our campus this week for Military Appreciation Day.
As some of you may know, I coached football at Tech and received my Masters and Doctorate degrees from there and I continue as a Hokie Club member (certainly not to exceed our IPTAY membership). The point being that Tech remains special to me.
We continue to keep Virginia Tech in our thoughts as they work through the horrific tragedy they experienced – one can only imagine the pain they have gone through.
And, finally, it is only fitting that we have Virginia Tech to help celebrate Military Appreciation Day. Like our University, Virginia Tech has a rich military heritage.
Again, we welcome our friends from Virginia Tech.
In Solid Orange, Terry Don Phillips Director of Athletics
